New Malware Alert – BoBrowser

The BoBrowser piece of Malware has spread quite rapidly over the last few weeks.

This is classed as Adware and works by hijacking your internet browser and delivering endless adverts to you. bobrser

The difference between this and the typical Block & Surf & 24/7 Help types of adware, this seems to completely replace your browser.

I have posted an icon to look out for, particularly if you use the Chrome browser.

If your Chrome browser has changed to the icon picture on this post then it isn’t actually your Google Chrome browser that you are opening – it’s Chromium – packed full of adware and all other bugs.

The root of this appears to come from websites that claim to allow you to stream the latest films, TV on demand and live football.
